Jeremy Scott and Katy Perry’s synergetic relationship doesn’t always produce the best wardrobe results. The 2015 Super Bowl is evidence enough. Perry’s four outfits were at times gaudy and almost unimaginative.
Scott designed four outfits for Perry. The pop-icon opened up her set in a flame-emblazoned dress whilst riding a colossal golden tiger. The dress looked gaudy, messy and quite similar to Will Ferrell’s character costume in Blades of Glory. The dress seemed like a sheet of golden fabric enveloped in sketched flames. The result: cheap, derivative and unsatisfactory. Sorry Scott!
Perry continued her performance with a Beach Ball Bingo dress—a ‘50’s inspired two-piece look to perform “California Girls” and “Teenage Dream.” Now despite having well chosen colors and song coordination, once again this outfit wasn’t as sophisticated and as eye-grabbing as we would’ve hoped. The vulgarity of the top piece of the outfit was a great costume turn-off, and quite frankly disappointing.
Her third outfit consisted of an oversized blinged out football jersey. We get it; it’s the Super Bowl. But Scott, why go ahead and make Katy Perry look like a shiny chocolate popsicle? Not to mention, how creative, Jerry! I would’ve never expected a football jersey!
Her fourth outfit, being silver and star-covered made Perry look like a five-year old child taking part in her first play as a shooting star. The dress was made to compliment her song—what a shocker—“Firework”. The garb looked like a cheap, last minute dress that a first year, style-less, fashion student would’ve concocted using cd’s and broadcloth.
Scott was a grave disappointment. Thankfully Perry is a great and accomplished performer, so she could hide Jerry’s garish and fashion faux pas creations. Lets just hope he does a better job next time—fingers crossed. Get your head back in the game Jerry!
